TGI Friday’s Restaurant Closings 2020: Why The Restaurant Chain Is Closing 386 Locations. TGI Friday’s will likely suffer the fate of many restaurants amid the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, as the company reportedly won’t reopen the doors at 386 locations after seeing a sharp decline in sales.
Gone is the TGI prefix (a nod to the phrase ‘Thank God it’s Friday ‘), which has given the brand a celebratory quality since the first TGI Friday’s opened in 1965. Still, the brand seems determined to shorten its name – ‘ Friday’s ‘ lost its apostrophe in 2013, and now it’s no longer thanking the lord.

Sometimes the bell would ring for special bar promotions like certain drinks being half price for maybe an hour. Other situations for a bell ring could mean that the bar just received a large tip.

Applebee’s The plan for 2019 is to cut at least another 20 locations. The idea is not to kill off Applebee’s entirely but to fine-tune it. There will be greater focus on off-premises catering, takeout and delivery services.
